List of Needed Items

People often ask what items we use at the rescue that they could easily donate, as not everyone has a spare chinchilla cage lying around! So this page is a list of items that we use frequently at the rescue. These would be fairly simple items for the average person to donate, if they are trying to figure out how to help! Many of these can even be found at the dollar store!

Want to donate something that we need right at this specific moment? Contact us before you buy anything, and we'll be happy to tell you what items we're most in need of!

Onto the list (of everyday items):

  • white vinegar

  • isoprophyl alcohol (70%)

  • simple green
